Did Mote receive illegal donation from the Queen?

When disgraced former UKIP MEP and convicted benefit fraudster Ashley Mote was released from the slammer last December, he was full of effusive praise for his prison governor who, said Mote, had allowed him to continue his constituency work. This ensured, according to the pompous buffoon, that "my constituents did not suffer as a result of my incarceration". Perhaps Cashley even penned the towering "J'accuse" - a tour de force that sealed his status as a political philosopher and pamphleteer to rival Mill, Locke or Paine - when serving his time.

On a serious matter, MEPs have to declare their office expenditure and all donations in the register of interests. Indeed, all donations, either financial or 'in kind' must be registered with the Electoral Commission and European Parliament. Therefore, you would expect that a donation of free office facilities from Her Majesty's Prison Service would feature in Cashley's declaration. However, a quick check of Mote's declaration and a glance at the Electoral Commission's website shows that he does not mention it. There are two possibilities: either Ash paid for his prison facilities or he is simply too proud to declare a donation in kind from the Monarch? More to the point, has Her Maj been told?

I don't know why Corbett should be going on about Mote, when he himself has his nose in the gravy train.

Mind you only 11 months before it's bye bye.

The first anon poster should learn English. He has six errors of punctuation and grammar in one short sentence.

But one of the quirks of the UKIP lot is that for all their professed Britishness they hate the Queen because she fulfills her constitutional duty of signing off legislation drafted by a government elected by the people. See the looney forum at www.ukipforum.co.uk for their latest anti-monarchy remarks.
